Hi everyone… are you sitting back at your desk? Spring break go well? Kids back in school and you back in control of the home, life, destiny? I certainly hope so.
I wanted to chat with you about something I saw this weekend on TV. Normally I don’t watch golf on TV but this weekend was the Masters so I paid a little more attention than usual. Wow, what I saw was shocking, specifically the behavior of one Tiger Woods.
It got me thinking about this idea of Emotional Intelligence versus IQ. Have you heard of this? Well, pop in your ear buds and take a listen.. and decide, where you are on the EQ scale.Monday Morning Motivation

Good Enough Mother Minute: Motivation Time! (PODCAST)
Hey all.. Happy… oh whatever day it is. I have been so busy here on the site, with my external writing commitments and some crazy out-of-the-blue opportunities (which you’ll be hearing about shortly) that sometimes I get a little burned out. That’s a bad place for GEM to be (build legacy link); that’s a bad place for any of us to be.
Someone emailed me the other day and asked how I stay motivated which is what led to today’s podcast. So lean back, pop in your ear buds and listen to today’s Good Enough Mother minute. What are your secrets for staying on track, focused and motivated?Quick Questions: Friendship

Hope you’re making it a great day
You ever wonder what makes a good friend?
Why you are attracted to certain people, on a friendship basis and why they seek you out too?
And what causes a particularly close relationship to go downhill, sometimes leaving both parties sad and puzzled?
Judging by some of the letters we get here at GEM headquarters it’s something a lot of you are pondering.
So grab yourself a cup o’ Joe, put your headphones on and take a listen as your Good Enough Mother tackles these topics and more in this installment of Quick Questions.

It’s Quick Questions time again…
Do you ever wonder when you’re looking at friends or other couples, if your relationship is normal?
Do your friends have the same kind of knock down, drag out arguments over some of the silly things you and your spouse fight over?
Maybe you wonder if you knew now what you knew then, would you have married the same person, or married at all?
In this installment of Quick Questions, I’m taking on all these topics – and many more.
So grab your coffee, sit back and have a listen!
